Pojo's Card of the Day
- Dark [Fiend]
Rating - 5/5
imo, is the best monster card in the game. 2500
Attack for one sacrifice, thats just amazing.
You can get
Summoned Skull out FIRST TURN if your opponent goes
first! Change of Heart or Soul Exchange. 2500
damage, first turn is awesome! This card is WAY
better then Dark Magician. You only have to discard
1 monster, and you have the same attack! And barely
any monster will be able to keep up with Skull's
attack, so its safe to leave it in Attack mode.
The only bad thing
about Skull is that, if you play it flipped over, it
barely has any defense. That, and cards like
Fissure, Change of Heart, Raigeki etc can bite you
right in the butt.
This is the best one sacrafice
card there is in the lobewd set by far. All
you need is a sword of dark destruction and yami to
ko a bewd. This is a easy first class
card to get out. One sacrafice and you have
the same attack as a dark magician!!
Though I havn't seen any good combos for
this card. Best I can do is tell you to power
it up with sword of Dark Destruction, and yami.
If you know of any good combos, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Casual: 5/5 – He’ll probably be the fiercest
thing you’ll meet on the board, easiest creature
to play, and the hardest to remove.
Tourny: 5/5 – Yup, perfect score. He just fits too
well into any deck, plus given the fact that 90% of
decks today are Spellcasters/Fiends… o_O
Meet Summoned Skull. Boasting
2500 ATK, he is a 6 star Goliath. Coupled with the
Dark aliment and Fiend status he makes a very
dangerous addition to the Yugi deck.
Like I said, a Dark Fiend is half of the probably
most used deck out there- Spellcasters and Fiends.
This little bugger ties the Dark Magician for ATK
power- a monster requiring TWO monsters for a
tribute. He completely pwnz Gaia The Fierce Knight,
another two monster summon with only 2300 ATK.
Summoned Skull is simply pwnage in the current
If you add some magics to his power, you can even
pump him beyond Blue Eyes White Dragon range! Add
Dark Energy (+300 ATK/DEF), Yami (+200 ATK/DEF), and
Sword of Dark Destruction (+400 ATK, -200 DEF) and
you’ll have a 3400 powerhouse! You can add
Reinforcements as well, should you wish to. Due to
the fact that Yami and Sword of Dark Destruction can
effect the Dark Magician, he has good synergy with
The biggest threat surrounding the Summoned Skull is
availability. If there’s a monster on the field,
you may be eating a 2500 attack! Of course we have
the general ways of countering him- Trap Hole,
Fissure, Dark Hole, and Raigeki. Those will probably
be your best shots, because there are few monsters
that have 2600 ATK and above. The easiest way is to
simply remove him via magic.
Hey its Zapper again, lets look at
another card from yugioh shall we? Here it is for
your looking pleasure... Summoned Skull: Causual
Play: 4.5/5 Tourney Play 4.5/5
Pros: Not a dragon
Only one tribute(great deal eh?)
So many cards to boost up its attack.
Defense(why would you put it in defense mode
Like any other monster trap holes,
raigeki, Man eating bug, and your oppenent using it
via monster reborn is always a con.
Pros: Well, well, well this card is pretty nice. In
future sets this will probably get shoveled out of
the mix, but for right now its a great card. What
makes it so great? Its the fact that the card for
one tribute has the same attack power as a dark
magician! Also like I said its not a dragon... I
mean I think everyone that doesn't play a dragons
deck plays dragon capture jar. Therefore dragon
capture jar is useless against the summoned skull.
And finally this card being a fiend/spellcaster has
many options when it comes to powering its attack
points up. Like yami and dark swords of destruction
etc etc... Otherwise it is just another big beefy
hitter even without using magic to power its
Reasons For Cons: Wow not very many cons
here. Uh well the defense is pretty low.
Although I don't know why you would ever want to put
summoned skull in defense mode. If you did you might
as well just quit the game... Although there are
exceptions to this. I just haven't found out what
those exceptions are yet ;p Like all monsters this
one is weak to raigeki, trap hole(unless monster
reborn is used) Also man eating bug like to any
monster is a problem... Those are really the only
cons I see to this card spiffy eh? Combos: The only
combo I really see with this card is to use card
destruction, and then use monster reborn to get back
the summoned skull, although I don't know why you'd
wanna get back summoned skull when you can get back
a dark magician or just something better. Well this
CoTd was a bit shorter this time. I guess this card
was well just cool. hm? uh yea until the next
card of the day. Have a nice day :)
